It has been a very long while since the last time I ever wrote anything here. It seems like my passion for writing has faded away and all I want to do now is read. Which is what I am supposed to do right now. Duh.
But some people have forced me (indirectly) to write this particular post that I would never expect myself to write back in the past. So, yeah, here I am, trying my best to keep my temper off the page and be rational.
Since I was a little girl, my parents think it is super necessary for me to look presentable. To go out, I must at least match my scarf with my shirt. I couldn't just go out and pick random (
My parents always want me to look presentable. We might do not have much money back then, but my parents will never use that as an excuse to not let me wear pretty things. My mother, especially. She tried her best to match whatever I have so that I will never ever look out of style.
And yes, even up until now, my parents still have a big influence on my fashion taste. I am still not allowed to go out wearing a T-shirt with jeans. At least, I have to put on an acceptable blouse to go out. They are really good
If my parents are good in fashion, my sister is just GREAT in it. She knows exactly what to wear and how to put it together. Even when she was younger, my sister has always been the most stylish one in the whole family. Everyone knows my sister for her great likings in heels, glittery clothes and pretty accessories.
I was a decent looking girl.
While my sister was a
When we moved to Seremban, in 2011 if I am not mistaken, I have stopped from wearing any facial products. I stopped my
Slowly, she developed her make-up skills by
"People are not all the same. This is her thing,
let'sher do it."
That is my father.
Now, I am so proud to look how my sister is so skillful when it comes to a face. She knows exactly what to do with
"That's because you do not know anything about make-ups."
If you are wondering how my sister looks like now, well, pretty as ever. No matter how much make-up she put on, her skin is still flawless. It is all about choosing the right thing to wear.
As an older sister, I thought I
Whenever we go back to our hometown, not many people can help themselves from not saying out loud how beautiful my sister is. They will always compliment her and look at her and you know, impressed on how good she looks at her age. And that is when I started to feel INVISIBLE.
I realized not many people are looking at me anymore because my sister shines so much brighter than me. No matter how much people says that HEART MATTER THE MOST, they still
I might not be as pretty as my sister, but after that, yes, people do notice me all again. And that is why, I am improving on my make-up skills these days. So that,
Recently, Malaysian Ringgit has fallen in terms of the value. There are also political issues going on in my country that hurt most of the people more than I thought it would be. It seems improper for me to write this piece now, but, you see, some people need to be given some explanation. Or at least, I need to give an explanation to myself so that my brain stop from being messed up while I am reading.
So, I have been reading some annoying tweets these days saying that girls are wearing
I couldn't even explain my
And then, they are even some other people that make fun of girls who wearing make-ups not to impress the males. They said we (since I do not wear make-up to freaking impress the other gender) are wearing
This morning, while preparing herself to school, my sister made me watch a video.
There you go. One of the reasons why people wear
Not everyone has a perfect skin. Not everyone is naturally physically beautiful. And don't tell me that kind people are beautiful. WE KNOW THAT ALREADY.
The question is, will you look at an ugly person (by your
denifition) with no disgust at all?
If you want to choose a partner, (
tomen especially), will you not look at her face at all?
That is the problem of our society nowadays. They want girls to look beautiful and when they did, they say girls are putting too much
To be truth, I am so tired of people insulting each other.
It is easy for pious girls that come from religious schools to tell other girls that make-up are not necessary and even up to a stake where it is forbidden. It was undoubtedly easy for them since they are well-educated with the knowledge that God does not judge us based on how we look but on how our heart is. These pious girls can give all the fatwas from all around the world saying that make-up is forbidden, but really, how do you tell that to other girls that are not so pious as you?
Telling them that make-up is forbidden will not make them feel more comfortable with their skin. That also will not make them feel more confident with their looks.
Don't tell them make-up is
We all have our struggles and the other girl struggles will never be the same like the other girls'.
For me, I put on
But as for me, I go all make-up free around people that love me dearly. I know they don't care how I look like. When I go out with my favorite guy friend, I go all make-up free because I know he is already impressed with me for who I am. He sees me so, I don't need to impress him more with
So does my sister. She agrees that every woman should go all make-up free around their husbands because your husband should be accepting you for who you are. And, it is not like you can wear make-up all the time around him, don't you think? (But then, it doesn't mean you can look all dirty in front of them either)
You see, most of us, wear make-up just to fit in. Or, to stop people from feeling disgusted looking at our faces.
My point is, PLEASE STOP JUDGING PEOPLE THAT WEAR MAKE-UPS.
I am so tired listening to men insulting girls with
We care so much more to impress ourselves. To look good and to be accepted, not only by men, BUT BY HUMAN BEINGS IN GENERAL.
If you think make-up are fake and stuffs, okay. That's fine. But saying in a very harsh way to other people who wear
This post is not to ask you to wear more
This post is just asking you to stop judging and insulting people that wear
It is fine for you not to like make-ups.
But insulting people who wear make-ups will never be okay, okay?
